Required Listening: Ledisi's New Record Is Out Today And It's Real Good

by Bill Chenevert
I'm late to this party, but her brand of R&B is powerful, catchy, and better than a lot of other hos.

The Louisiana-raised soul singer's been on her game for over fifteen years. She didn't really start to get hers until she signed a contract with Verve Forecast and started getting Grammy nominations. Her third studio album, Lost & Found, was nominated for Best R&B Album, and also got her a Best New Artist nom. After a Christmas album, her fifth album, 2009's Turn Me Loose, was also highlighted as a Best R&B Album by the Academy, and the single "Goin' Thru Changes" got a nod for Best R&B Female Vocal Performance. 

She's far from a household name. But this new record, Pieces Of Me, arrived in the mail today and it's a keeper. Listen to this banger!
